Three Grand Openings in Downtown Woodbury

WOODBURY, NJ—On December 4, 2013 Woodbury’s Mayor Bill Volk and Councilmembers along with representatives from Main Street Woodbury, Woodbury’s Merchant’s Association and the Greater Woodbury Chamber of Commerce will celebrate the grand opening of three new businesses in downtown Woodbury.

 

Starting at 4 pm, guests will join owners, Vincent and Dave Trovato for a ribbon cutting ceremony at the new art supply store, Crazy Never Die located at 58 S Broad Street. Appetizers will be served following the ceremony.

 

Guests will then walk down the street to 5 Hopkins Street and visit with Leon and Laura Droz the new owners of Del Mar Steak and Subs. The Del Mar ribbon cutting will start at 4:45 and they will be serving up some of their specialty items like pork, beans and rice, the Cuban, chili and special seasoned wings.

 

Then at 5:30, a third ribbon cutting will take place in front of the new location for Tiki Tiki Board Games and the office for Island Officials video game development studio located at 232 S Broad Street. Dessert will be served immediately after the ceremony complements of Del Mar.

 

According to Mayor Bill Volk, “With 13 new businesses opening this past year and at least three more scheduled to open in January 2014, I am thrilled with the economic development taking place. All our non-profit business organizations are working together and we seem to be moving in the right direction to make Woodbury a future Gloucester County shopping destination.”

 

Vincent Trovato, owner of Crazy Never Die states, “I am proud to be a new retailer on Broad Street. There is so much potential for the arts here. I grew up here. My parents have businesses here and now I am a part of the town’s history.”

 

Crazy Never Die features such items as sketch/drawing pads, acrylic paints, pantone markers, fine artist paint brushes and supplies. The store serves the needs of both the beginner and novice artist and Trovato is the house expert for any questions that need to be answered about use and application of the products.

 

Leon Droz and his wife Laura are originally from Venezuela and have several successful restaurants in Delaware. They decided to venture into New Jersey with their first location in Woodbury. The business has been open since September and they have seen a steady increase in their business, especially their delivery. They have a general menu and then a specialty Venezuelan menu that features beans and rice and tres leche cake.

 

Droz states, “Woodbury has been great to us. They welcomed us with open arms and everyone has really gone out of their way to make us feel at home. We are thrilled to be a part of the downtown and the community and look forward to building a very successful business here.”

 

Partners, Ryan Morrison, Ryan Harbinson & Tyler Ager, are the masterminds of Tiki Tiki Board Games and Island Officials video game development studio. The Tiki Tiki store features all the board games most of us grew up with like Monopoly, Twister, Candyland, Battleship, and carries many new games like Dominion, 7 Wonders and Pixel Lincoln the Deck Building game developed by Island Officials.

 

Island Officials video game development studio is staged in the back portion of the store. It is where their team creates the digital games, tabletop games, apps and websites. Island Officials is responsible for the Nintendo game Hands On! Tangrams and the Ryan’s won the Atari Community Choice Award for their entry, Pong EVO, in Atari’s Pong Indie Developer Challenge. They are now debuting their newest computer generated game for Nintendo called Orion’s odyssey and the digital counterpart for Pixel Lincoln should be released in early 2014.

 

Tiki Tiki has been a retailer in Woodbury for over a year now and just relocated to the new, larger space to accommodate their business expansion.

 

According to Morrison, “We like it here in Woodbury. The space works for our retail business and our service business. It is a very close knit community that has embraced us as individuals as well as our business. I feel very fortunate to be able to work in the great town where I grew up.”

 

In 2013, the City of Woodbury opened 13 new businesses including: Little Caesar’s, King of Steaks, Tara’s Treasures, Priya Art Gallery, Drs. Camacho, Catania and Shaw of Medical Group Associates, Polish Water Ice, Bottom Dollar, Del-Mar Steaks and Subs, Tiana’s Colombian Jeans and More, Evergreen Day Spa and The Crazy Never Die Art Supply, 740 North Broad Street Window Tinting and Bo Ne a Vietnamese restaurant.

 

In 2014, the GG Green Building located at 108 S Broad will be opening one of their retail units to a dance studio. Tire Corral will open their doors at the former Romar Tire facility located at 340 Lincoln Street. And, Excess Reinsurance who purchased the historic Masonic Lodge located at 48 North Broad Street and will be relocating from their current offices on Evergreen Avenue.
